The Pelco Spectra IV SE Dome System is made up of three key components - a back box, a dome drive, and a lower dome - each of which is also available for separate purchase. This way you can upgrade, swap, or replace a part of the camera without having to invest in a whole new system. Because of the back box built-in memory you won't have to reprogram the camera if you replace the existing dome drive with another one of the Spectra IV SE series.
Along with a powerful 27x optical zoom, this system offers 360° continuous pan, fast pan and tilt speeds (400°/sec pan / 200°/sec tilt in preset mode) as well as a full complement of presets and tours. The system also supports zone blanking, proportional pan and tilt, and an on-screen compass. Additionally, the system features 7 alarm inputs and 2 alarm outputs for connecting external alarm and triggering devices.
Support for Coaxitron, Sensormatic, and Vicon PTZ protocols ensures interoperability with third party CCTV controllers. An optional Pelco translator card (TXB series) is available for compatibility with controllers from various other manufacturers. Also available as an option is an IP communication module (TXB-IP series) which will enable remote PTZ control over a network.
The camera uses a Sony EXview HAD to generate clear and bright images of the surveillance area. A Day/Night function enhances image visibility during nighttime hours. The camera also employs a 128x wide dynamic range function to help maintain proper exposure in extreme lighting scenarios.
